"Simple Spring Flowers"
8 x 10"
oil on canvas
I posted my first daily painting on February 21st, 2008, and I know I've come a long way in the past two years. I've painted and done various other kinds of art for most of my life, but during several years prior to starting this blog, I made no art whatsoever. I was kind of adrift - thoroughly discouraged after graduating art school, and wondering if I'd ever find a way to get back to a place where I wanted to create. The idea of Daily Painting freed me from the pressure I felt to make something "Great" every time I sat down at the easel. Knowing that tomorrow would be a new day - that I could just start over, no matter what happened with the particular piece I was working on has been a revelation.
Just for fun, here's #100 and #200.
